Re: favourite canon fighters.
It's like attacking a Aeolus in a Pegasus.


I've done that and won.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
Shoot the AAA beam on one side of the ship with a Trebuchet, pummel with Prometheus S from outside flak range. :P

 
Re: favourite canon fighters.
Nah, Trebuchets in both banks and liberal use of the support ship

In this Case, it's like attacking an Aeolus in a Pegasus on the hardest difficulty. And you're armed with Subachs and Harpoons.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
Attack an Aeolus with any kind of ship with that load out head on and you'll die. Then again you could still probably try to pummel it out of its range. You need better analogies...

Re: favourite canon fighters.
I can beat an aeolus in that.
You just need to get into its sole blind spot (directly behind).

You could kill it in an unshielded anubis, given there are no hostile fighters around.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
In retail you can attack an Aeolus in just about anything on Insane and survive. It's a matter of taking out the defenses on one section before they kill you. In a Pegasus, it's partially luck (killing the AAA beam takes precedence) you just need to dive in fast so that only a few turrets can attack you (side / bottom is usually best) and then take those out. After that its a matter of taping fire down.


Try that in Vassago's Dirge and you're toast. WiH you can still do it to an extent, although it varies from Aeolus to Aeolus. The Hyperions are pretty excellent at killing you at range however, and never mess with a Chimera directly.

Leviathans can actually be a bit more dangerous with four AAA.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
Leviathans can't project all four AAAs at any target, sadly. Well, two already are dangerous enough...

Re: favourite canon fighters.
I also like the Horus... also purely for aesthetics. :nervous:
In fact in one play through of the campaign I flew it instead of the default Seraphis for intercept roles.

The Serapis is a death trap for me, but I like that ship.

BTW I love the Tauret and the Sekhmet.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
Except for the fact that it has one gunbank...which means that you have to choose between maxim spamming and being able to defend yourself.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
Let the Maxim spamming to Herc2s and Areses. That's what they're good at, with Treb spamming. And let the bombing to bombers.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
I can kill shielded fighters with maxims. You just have to shoot them a lot.

Re: favourite canon fighters.
Well you also have to make sure you're not missing too much and you can keep enough energy to continue shooting at them, most importantly you need to make sure you don't have other fighters trying to kill you and forcing you to divide your attention between firing and dodging. :nervous:

 
Re: favourite canon fighters.
Firing while dodging is easy though
